oklahoma and targeting oklahoma, arkansas and even missouri in the hours to come. i'm julie martin, tamron, back to you. >>> right now that system is moving through oklahoma, where it's also causing floods and tornadoes. let's get the latest on the situation there. weather channel chris warren is live in sand springs, oklahoma. chris, what are you seeing there? >> well, right now, tamron, we're seeing light drizzle at times. little right rain here and there. the worst of it does appear to be over and oklahoma for the most part during the overnight hours did not fair nearly as bad as texas. again, some puddles we have right here. i'm west of tulsa and there were some spots where we did have some pretty heavy rain. in east central oklahoma, the radar estimates 10 to 12 inches of rain. so, with that, some businesses were flooded. there were some roads washed out and then the storm moving into arkansas. also getting some reports there of having to have some water rescues going on. but from where we are right now west of tulsa, not a whole lot going on. more than just a little bit of light rain
that sarah shourd has been met by her mother in oman. >> reporter: that's right, tamron. an end of an agonizing weekend of uncertainty for sarah shourd. we don't know what is going to happen with shane bauer and josh fattal. they said it would be reviewed in two months time. they may still have to face trial, or they may be given the same sort of compassionate treatment sarah was and let go. so still this story has to play out a lot further, tamron. >> and even past these individuals, president ahmadinejad will be visiting new york very soon. many are speculating this show of compassion also ties into his visit to the state. >> reporter: absolutely. the timing can't be too coincidental. he's going to the states. iran is under intense pressure under the nuclear program. it's come under scrutiny over human rights. when he wants to address the world on the world stage of the u.n., he probably wants to go soften iran's image. that was one step forward to doing that. >> ali arouzi live. the latest news is sarah shourd was met by her mother in oman. she read a short statement thanks t

>> stev >> reporter: yeah, it looks like things may have backed off a little bit, tamron. we had a heck of a lot of rain this morning. upwards of two inches officially at reagan national airport. some areas east of here picking up six and seven inches of rain. there were some water rescues reported in the last couple hours near a metro station here in d.c. at the edge wood terrace area at rhode island avenue. so, yeah, parts of d.c. got tremendous amounts of rain. the rain is all the way from the carolinas up through virginia and the eastern shore, all the way up to nye city and getting into new england as well. we'll deal with this for at least the next 24 to 36 hours as the whole mess works up the coast. there could be severe weather in there as well. still under a tornado warning in the area. also as we head to southeast pennsylvania. we've had tornado warnings. we'll keep you updated from here. the rain may have stopped, but the wind is starting to blow a little bit. we're still not out of the woods yet. >> north of where jeff is now, a tornado watch has been issued for delaw
on saturday. >> i think you're right. i think this has been a several day long diversion. tamron, this is the second time since the real september 11th that the date has fallen on a saturday, and unlike the first occasion of a couple of years ago where i think people thought it was improper to schedule celebrations, even sporting events on that day, there's no holds barred already. there's a day where people are going to have company picnics and anniversary celebrations, weddings, bar mitzvahs and play football. alabama and penn state saturday night, the whole country will be watching. i've already been concerned about the fight for attention with paying homage to what transpired on september 11th and along comes this guy who is the religion equivalent of balloon boy. it's just been atrocious. what i keep thinking of are what the fbi profilers say when you have a serial killer, and that may seem a bit dramatic but they worry about copycats. maybe in the end he comes to whatever sense he has left in his head and stops this, but there's some shut-in somewhere looking at it says, i'
mustang. police are now actively searching for them as we speak. as for the teller, incredibly, tamron, he's okay at this hour. the device was taken off of him. he was led out of the bank at about 11:30 today. at this point police are not releasing his identity, and they are still questioning him because they're not quite ready to say whether he was innocent in all of this or whether he may have been involved in some way. the suspected bomb was left inside the bank, and authorities have deemed it safe. thankfully, nobody was hurt here today, and no other employees here were held hostage. three robbers who strapped a bomb to this bank teller's chest and stole money from this bank of america here are still on the loose. pretty intense afternoon here. >> thank you very much. >>> developing now, one o the giant banks that received one of the biggest taxpayer bailouts during the financial crisis, well, they're at it again. documents just released by citigroup show the top 25 executives except for the ceo are getting multi-million dollar salary raises in stock and potentially millions more in bo
watching, eric? >> i'm watching a lot of rain, tamron, moving into south florida. it is not the type of day that the beach resorts hope for. we are going to see this rain continuing through the afternoon into the evening as well. although winds not going to be a big part of this story. i've got a little personal weather station here. the water is off to my left. when i look at it, we're talking 5 to 15 miles an hour. that's certainly not an epic storm. this isn't going to go down in the history books. in terms of the wind, really not a big deal. it became a tropical storm by reaching wind speeds of 40 miles an hour. as it moves northward, we could see gusts. the 4 to 8 inches of rainfall in south florida, that can pose a problem, especially for the more urban areas. the water stacks up. we have a lot of paved roads. especially as we get into this evening commute, we could -- we always tell people turn around, don't drown. most of the flooding-related fatalities occur when people try to cross the flooded waters. it's mainly life as usual here in south florida, except for the lack of sunshine

be injured. what is the story there? >> reporter: tamron, we expect the house to house searches to begin any moment. the death toll stands at 4 people. many more injured. it was a rupture of a gas transmission line that caused a huge explosion and fire at about 6:15 last night. let me show you what is happening right now. people are gathering at this perimeter. people who live in the fire zone are gathering here to see if they can get in to assess the damage to their homes. i saw one man who seems to think that he can see his home from this far of a distance and saw one home right next door destroyed but he seemed to think that his was just slightly damaged. the residents have been told to stay out because the area is not deemed safe. fire crew also go house to house to see if there are victims. there are 12 specially trained dogs to help sniff those victims out. it's been an a source of ongoing investigation that there's no estimate on the number of people still unaccounted for. some good news, fire crews have a handle on the fire that is brewing here. the death toll he expected to go up. t
one that's standing out in the rain anyway, tamron. it's been raining on and off and at times it becomes lighter and we just had a heavy downpour move through here and we weren't sure we could do the shot with you and cleared up just enough. it was pouring here about a minute or two ago. still coming down hard and there have been some localized flooding areas for instance, i don't know if anybody out there is familiar with the d.c. area but virginia avenue has been closed between 21 and 25th street because of some flooding and some other streets around here, as well. again, i'm on connecticut avenue, if you go that way, it's headed towards the city itself and there are some underpasses here like behind me where connecticut avenue drops down behind dupont circle and it's in the underpasses where oftentimes you get a lot of the water ponding and sometimes those have to be closed. so far so good as far as that is concerned. but we still have this whole day to go through. as you mentioned, we're under a flash flood warning and a tornado watch, as well. it's just a bad day. hopeful

. let's compare it to reagan and clinton around this same time in their first terms. >> you know, tamron, exactly. this is very similar to what ronald reagan experienced in 1982. his party took a loss in the midterm elections. the economy wasn't doing very well at all, but then it rebounded in 1993 on to his re-election in 1984, and certainly democrats are hoping that that same formula plays out as we head into 2011 and 2012. but right now, people are very angry, and that's really the backdrop for this entire midterm election that will be coming up just two months from now. it's not necessarily a referendum on president obama, but it is a referendum on the economic environment right now, and things aren't pretty, not only those numbers, but more than 60% say they think the country's on the wrong track and that's never good news when you're the incumbent party, the party in power, as the democrats are right now. >> it's interesting, mark, i saw a headline on my way in online basically asking can the president create jobs before the midterms? obviously, that would be quite impressive, but
were from the previous segment. they decided in this campaign they have so many things, tamron, going this their favor, the political wins are blowing their way, they don't want to throw out obstacles for the candidate ls. paul ryan, the ranking republican on house budget who has come out with a specific road map, tough choices to be made, they don't want their candidates near the choices if they don't want to embrace them. this is a campaign document, the governing choices will come later if they gain power. >> how does this compare from a contract with america from 1994? >> there's some similarities. similarities in the overall environment. that had votes that tested in the polls to be very popular. balanced budget amendment, for example. the balanced budget amendment is not in here in part because our fiscal problems are so much worse. and they know it will be difficult to get the balanced budget done in a near-term time frame. the contract with america spelled out process reforms. they have some of those here. transparency. making sure the public sees bills and the legislators rea

's largest groups for gay and lesbian groups. thank you for joining me. >> thank you for having me, tamron. >> i understand your concern on hour harry reid set up the bill, you believe he set it up for failure. why? >> this is an unusual way he's chosen to proceed. if susan collins is not on board, you know something is going wrong. susan collins voted for the bill in committee against her party. she voted it out, obviously. but she's not with us on this minor procedural vote, the motion to proceed. if susan collins is not on board, something is wrong. harry reid didn't have to proceed this way. he could have allowed a few amendments, negotiated with senator collins, maybe. >> what amendments would be acceptable? what changes would you see as acceptable? >> to some this is clear. either it will be repealed or not. >> well, this is not -- it's murkier than that. you'll have a couple votes to get don't ask, don't tell to a point where it can be repealed. this is the first of potentially three or four. this is the motion to proceed on the vote, of course. but bottom line is he can easily nego
getting the other two free? >> well, tamron, as we've seen, they were very influential in getting sarah shourd freed. they made strong deals with the iranian government and paid the bail. they were key in her release. it's got to be said the statements that have come out the last few days haven't come from the iranian government or spokesman. these are in a hard line newspaper that have close ties to the supreme leader. sko they're getting their information from somewhere. but it hasn't been funneled through official channels in iran. but having said that, this is the first positive step we've seen for the two men that are being left back in iran as sarah shourd says she felt one-third free. so the other two of them are still in captivity, but this is the most positive news that's come out of iran. the judiciary said recently they want these two guys to still strand trial, possibly over the next two months. i think iran is now under internal pressure and domestic pressure to make it clear what exactly is going to happen with the two boys left behind in prison. whether they're going to f
